IDEA10, truly a global event

A strong showing of international visitors and exhibitors, along with significant presence of first-time exhibitors, were among the many highlights of the highly successful IDEA10 International Engineered Fabrics Conference and Exposition, held April 27-29 in Miami Beach, Florida.

IDEA10, the triennial event sponsored by INDA, featured 379 exhibiting companies from 22 countries, filling almost 400,000 gross square feet (37,000 square meters) of the Miami Beach Convention Center. Exactly one half of the exhibitors were from outside of the United States. In addition, there were approximately 5,500 attendees and more than one-third of them came from countries outside the U.S.

“IDEA10 was one of the most successful IDEA shows ever and the continued strong participation of foreign exhibitors and attendees is proof of the show's importance within the international engineered fabrics community,” says INDA president Rory Holmes. “IDEA10 was truly a global event.”

Of the 379 exhibiting companies, 143?were first-time exhibitors. “These new exhibitors, combined with the continued growth of international participation, speaks well of the continuing vibrancy of the engineered fabrics industry here and abroad,” says Holmes.

In addition to the thousands of attendees and hundreds of exhibitors on the show floor of the Miami Beach Convention Center, many more were doing business at the 40 meeting rooms utilized by many of the leading companies in the industry to facilitate their business discussions. The intense activity in this growing segment of the event enhanced the quantity and quality of business conducted during the three days of IDEA10.

Among the other highlights of IDEA10:
- The presentation of the IDEA10 Achievement Awards – sponsored by INDA and Nonwovens Industry magazine – recognized companies in five categories for the best new products introduced since IDEA07.

The winners of the IDEA10 Achievement Awards were:
IDEA10 Machinery/Equipment Achievement Award: - ITW Dynatec: Vector Modular Metering Platform

IDEA10 Fibers/Raw Materials Achievement Award: - Bostik: Relyance Adhesive

IDEA10 Roll Goods Achievement Award: - PGI: Spinlace

IDEA10 Short-Life Converted Product Achievement Award: - Henkel/ Dial: Purex Complete 3-in-1 Laundry Sheets

IDEA10 Long-Life Converted Product Achievement Award: - DuPont: Nomex KD

- An IDEA10 Entrepreneurial Achievement Award was presented to Fi-Tech, which in 2009 took the bold step of forming a joint venture company with Uwe Gaedike, and successfully completed the purchase of Oerlikon Enka Tecnica GmbH.

- In a special moment during the IDEA10 Achievement Awards event, Holmes recognized the accomplishments of former INDA Technical Director Cos Camelio, who passed away in May, 2008, shortly after retiring from the association. The IDEA Lifetime Achievement Award had been presented posthumously to Cos Camelio's wife, Phyllis, at a special event last year. Camelio has also been inducted into the Nonwovens Industry Hall of Fame.
